Why ASK? Because ASKING Attracts Like-Minded People to You
LAURA’s TIP: It’s no secret that with two sets of families involved, assumptions will be made that might not necessarily mesh with your big-day plans — but what do you do when a friend assumes she’ll be part of the bigger festivities? Instead of hoping and praying your friend will understand, get in front of the conversation and say, “I would have loved to have a larger bridal party, but I hope you can support our decision to keep it small — I’m asking that this will not jeopardize our friendship.” Reinforce how important your friend is to you and ask her to participate in another special wedding activity, emphasizing how much that would mean to you. Not everyone will understand but, by asking for their support, you can feel good that you recognized a friend’s feelings and want to remain close.
